Teacher Education & Digital Technology

ATEE Winter Conference 2018

Sub-theme descriptions:

Teacher Education & Digital Technology
Digital technology increasingly becomes an essential component of the working practice of teachers and learners. Innovative tools, such as Video Games, Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality, represent a challenge to optimize existing educational design principles, to change teacher thinking, to apply new teaching methods and to support learning processes inside or outside traditional classrooms. We welcome contributions focusing on effectively integrating digital technology in teacher education. Moreover, we are very interested in how teacher educators perceive the value of such innovative technologies for their educational practice. Therefore, this sub-theme of the conference concentrates on conceptual, theoretical and empirical research related to digital technologies in (school) education, primarily through the spectrum of teacher education.
